Behavior Bullying the Merriam-Webster Online Term Paper

Excerpt from Term Paper :



Parents can team up with teachers and schools by asking for school conferences where they can address the issue of bullying, (Barreto). The parents can also keep a record of incidents of harassment and the ways in which the school handled these situations. They should also insist on the putting up of a bullying prevention committee if one is not already in place. In order for the committee to be effective, it needs to have representatives from administration, teachers, school mental health teams and parents.

2. Teachers should be encouraged to involve the students in creating rules for the classroom regarding bullying. They should have a serious talk with the bully and explain the unacceptability of the behavior as well as its negative consequences. Reports of bullying should not be left to deal with bullying on their own in the hope that the experience will make them stronger individuals, bullying only makes them more vulnerable. Parents should be taught how to tell the signs of bullying and harassment.

In conclusion, there is need of cooperation between those who witness bullying, the victims of bullying, parents and the institutions where the victims are to ensure that bullying is stopped or dealt with effectively.
